When I got married back in 2008, I was completely stuck up in household chores and didn’t have much time to spare but after my kids grew a little older, I started to have a lot of free time. Once day I decided, why not try work from home jobs? This is when my life took a miraculous turn and now I save a decent amount of money by working from home. My husband is happy as I am saving enough for the future of my family.

Let’s take a look at some of the ways through which stay at home moms can earn extra money for their family:

Start a Blog

If you have a passion for writing and like to share your thoughts then blogging is the perfect platform for you.

Before you start a blog, you need to decide on the topic. Choose a topic that you are passionate about like cooking, traveling, gardening, technology etc. Once you have chosen the topic, you can start to pen down your thoughts.

Blogging is not an immediate channel of revenue so you will have to wait for 2-3 years before you start earning money. Once the blog gets popular, you will start earning a gradual stream of money through advertising, sponsored posts and affiliate marketing.

Get a Freelance Job

If you have a skill like website designing, digital marketing, social media marketing, writing etc. then you can start finding jobs on portals like Boontech. You simply need to register on the site and start looking for jobs that matches your skills.

Becoming a freelancer is not that easy but once you have groomed your skills and have achieved a good job success score then your earning potential has no limits.

Opt For Mystery Shopping

Chances are that you haven’t heard this term before! Right?

Mystery shopping is a platform where company pays you to check their quality of products and services.

In order to get started with mystery shopping, simply fill out this survey and companies might start contacting you to check their services. You can also search on Google and find out companies who are looking for mystery shoppers like you!

Test Websites

If you have a passion for technology and websites then site testing is a good option for you. Sites like whatusersdo pay you a few dollars for every site you test.

You can search for other similar sites on Google that pay you to test websites online.

Serve as Online Juror

If you think you have a lawyer in you then you can serve as a juror online.

There are several attorneys who use large panels of online mock jurors to get feedback on their cases before they go to trial. The only condition is that the mock juror must live in the locality where the case will be tried.

For example, pays $5 to $10 per case via the online payment system PayPal.

Final Thoughts

There is no looking back after you have started working online on any of the platforms suggested above. There is no happier feeling that earning money for yourself and your family after some hard work. It’s time to taste the sweet taste of your hard work. Happy freelancing!
